THOUGHT OF THE DAYHow many of you have heard of world class golfer Nancy Lopez? As a young Hispanic woman, Nancy Lopez overcame obstacles of racism and bigotry with her positive attitude and hard work. She became a big winner at a young age. Here’s what she says about winning: You can’t win all the time. As long as, you are doing the best you can, that’s important. That’s good advice. Ask yourself today: Am I doing my best? If the answer is yes… congratulations. You’ll wind up a winner.
